Post 350 Cam question

I have a mild RV Cam and it's not cutting it, what are you guys using with 9.1 Pistons? I want power and a horrible idle.

Depends on how much you want to spend and what other components are you using, what engine. Not enough to work with.

Well, you're asking for it! Ok, how about the ex-274? Sure, if you don't have at least 9 to one compression, headers and at the very least 3.40s gears and a half way decent stall, it'll fall on it's face until 3000 rpm or so but it will have that "evil" idle. I have a 81 Camaro with shorty headers and 9.3 to one compression and am running the cheap SSI 214/224 with 1.6 stamped steel rockers. The cam has the sweatest little mildly lopey idle and feels like a freight train is pushing it, as soon as the four barrel kicks in!

With 3.73s you could probably afford a slight low end torque loss.I think the crane 216/228@050 454/480 lift 112 lobe sep would work good.It has a powwer band 2200-5000.

What carb, intake, type of driving, is it a daily driver or strip, is fuel mileage a concern, what is it going in, do you have vacuum assecories that you want to work (i.e. A/C, defroster, heater, etc.)

It's a built 350, Victor Jr Intake with a 650 Q Jet. It's my daily driver but that doesn't mean it can't be fast! MPG isn't really on my mind. I took the AC out.

Sorry more questions. What heads do you have? and maybe the last question how much do you want to spend? and, well maybe one more, how far do you want to tear into it.

The cam listed above is probably the max. with stock heads & valve springs and also stock heads.

Good luck

A Victor JR intake is a little to much for that set-up. You would be better off with a RPM Performer. I would recommend a 268H cam. Hope you do no have power brakes. Change the stall to a 2200 rpm. Get that boat a movin..
